Nomination period opens August 1

As you may know, the Massachusetts Teachers’ Retirement Board is comprised of seven members, two of whom are elected by the members of the Massachusetts Teachers’ Retirement System for four-year terms. Since the terms of our incumbent elected members expire later this year, the Board has scheduled an election for this fall. Active and retired MTRS members are eligible to run for these unpaid positions, and, to qualify as a candidate, eligible MTRS members must submit completed nomination papers containing the valid signatures of at least 100 active or retired MTRS members.

If you are interested in running for one of these positions, you may obtain nomination papers from our Charlestown office beginning August 1, 2019; completed nomination papers must then be submitted by October 15, 2019. Ballots will be mailed to the home addresses of eligible voters in early November, and votes must be cast by December 10, 2019.
